About once every couple of weeks I just have to have a dinner of brats or smoked sausage, with peppers, carrots and whatever else. Sometimes I even do something like Ranen noodles with them: double bad, bad, bad!!!!

I never say that and I love it all: chips, cheeseburgers, potstickers.

And I do not believe they are 'unhealthy'....tell a genuinely starving individual that the potstickers have 'no food value.'

Most recent junk food: The disguised TableTalk mini fruit pies. I say “disguised” because they now come in plain brown boxes labeled “Old-fashioned apple pie”. Didn’t fool me, an ex-New Englandite! I recognize those small square boxes even without the iconic dark-red and white package.

It is a reminder of childhood, so I eat it, with a small glass of milk. 3 grams of protein per minipie, not nutritious but a little better than, say, popsicles or Twinkies.

I could easily eat way too many good potato chips, so gotta watch out with those. Tim’s Cascade chips, Kettle plain ripples, Cape Cod originals...

High cacao % dark chocolate...not devoid of nutrition but also something to not overdo.

Quarterpounder at Mcdonalds with Fries and Coke !!
Pepperoni Pizza from Supermarket store - those frozen variety
Supermarket branded cola cans

This is unhealthy junk food.
I know it but as I cook almost everyday in home, this Junk Food is an enjoyable respite for me.

I eat healthy food mainly but also regularly eat junk food in moderation. Chocolate donuts, brownies, Hershey's chocolate bars, Almond Joy bars, Twinkies, sometimes cookies, etc. I eat to live and live to eat.

Yes, I've sunk really low because I like: That fake cheese tip that Tostitos sells in a jar ( heat a cupful in the microwave). I could almost eat the whole jar at one sitting if I have bag of tortilla chips to dunk.

fried spam (with either grits or scrambled eggs)

sea salt and vinegar potato chips (really any kind of Lays potato chips)

As far as I'm concerned, food is food, it's all good. In terms of weight control the only thing that matters in the long run is caloric intake. Eat what tastes good to you in moderation and you won't have any problems. If you have a vitamin deficiency (like B12) that's what vitamins are for.

Are cookies junk food? I eat them regularly. I just bought a package of thin cinnamon sugar crisp cookies and had one today.

None of that would qualify as "junk food" in my world. Ramen noodles aren't the best, but beat in an egg as it's cooking, and it's a quick, easy, and economical meal.

Potato chips. Fortunately, they stopped making most of the good ones. I hate, HATE kettle chips. I don't get the appeal at all. Laura Scudder used to make a chip with sea salt and cooked in peanut oil. OMG were they good.

My husband was buying some at Whole Foods and I had to tell him to stop. If they are around, I eat them.

Other than that, I have a sweet tooth. I can go for a while eating one dark chocolate covered pretzel after lunch to satisfy it but sometimes I need something else. I love to bake but have scaled it way, WAY back. I make a few cakes a year and when they are around, I eat them. But only during the day. If I have them at night, I get heartburn and can't sleep.
